    Let us know what a great job or not a great job we're doing. What do you think was the strangest or most outrageous reason for editing a thread or banning someone? What should we be doing that we're not doing or what are we doing that we shouldn't be doing. Anything or everything, let us know!!!

    We only ban her on Fridays because her posts are a little extra outrageous on that day.

    Ontopic... ;)

    I think I'd like to see a change made: if a thread is closed, I'd like the last post in it the be one where the mod explains why it is closed (and not just 'because', but a real, argumented reason). I think that makes the difference between a 'mod of the people' and a 'me mod, I'm god'.. since.. I mean.. hipforums isn't a totalitarian state like system right? I hope? And when it is.. you could still give some reasons. It are acts that concern the people posting here, same goes for the banning and temp banning. If there would be an public explanation to whom, why and how.. it can also show the consequences of certain acts more clearly.

    Basically.. why isn't everything mods do around here more out in the open?

    On a more serious note, I think that TheChaosFactor is truely a troll to these forums. He brings nothing to the table and is a pain in the ass to all who come here. I think think that the hipforums as a whole would benefit from the banning of this annoying, ignorant, and all around disrespectful little child. Either that, or you should release his IP to the general public of the forums so we can lynch his ass.

    alot of times the originator of the thread closes the thread themselves. most of the time moderators do give explanations for closing threads.

    and you cant expect moderators to give an explanation for banning or temp banning someone every single time, that is too much extra work, seriously. mods dont need to explain themselves.

    Hm.. maybe not everytime and it would be perfectly ok if it was a closed thread, not open for discussion.. but some clarity WOULD be nice. For instance (just an example, not to be discussed here since it would be offtopic).. why is the 'answer a question with a question' thread closed? People were still having fun there in it's a nice thread.. it was kinda slow lately but it could've just died out on it's own. Sometimes the post weren't questions (because someone didn't understand the concept or otherwise) but that's marginal.. most were playing along great and the further it went the more tricky it was. I just don't get stuff like that.. why was it closed without a reason? I'm sure there's a perfectly good one for it but is it too much to ask for the reason? For all I know the mod got bored with it .. I mean.. there are so many complete nonsense threads in this forum that don't get closed, that closing threads (that don't have real flaming in them) seems pretty much random this way.

    Just a thought.

    Okay, one thing you folks have to know is that we mods are human too. Sometimes I'm having a bad day and so I just come to "Random Thoughts" to do some moderating to get my frustrations out and I start randomly closing threads and banning people.

    Hopefully this satifies your need for reasons of why threads are closed for no reason or someone is banned. In the future, if there isn't a reason for a thread being closed or why someone is banned, know that I'm just letting out a little steam or maybe I'm just bored as sometimes I do it just out of boredom.

    Peace, your moderator, Chief Cowpie
